Into the Hellenic Trench looking for sperm whales
The Hellenic Trench is a 1,100 km long bathymetric feature that runs parallel to the western, southern and south-eastern coasts and islands of Greece. After a quick swim stop at Wreck Bay (Zakinthos) we will go out into the trench and follow the 1,000m counter southwards and then turn to the SW where the depth plummets to > 4,200m. We hope to see sperm whales here. If not then at least we will have a good sail before finishing the day at anchor off Keri and a next day trip to Marathonisi Island where the loggerhead turtles lay their eggs.
